“I spent four weeks living and working at Gokuldham of Nar. During the morning we helped out in the classrooms mainly teaching English. Whilst the school is English speaking there is no-one who has English as their first language so this was where we could make a difference. My back ground is in computing and not a teacher but there was still plenty I could do. We worked with the younger kids teaching them basic English on parts of the body, transport and geography. We led 4 or 5 assemblies with the whole school. The children particularly seemed to enjoy learning the song, ‘The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round’. In the afternoons we would work with the teachers preparing lessons and also letting them practice their English too. We were also shown around the local area. This is not a usual tourist destination so felt much more authentic than other parts of India. We had our meals in the retirement home on site and stayed in the cottages which were very comfortable. I enjoyed my time at Gokuldham of Nar and wish the school and staff at the campus all the best.”
I was really sad to leave the campus as time went by so fast! Further I hope to stay in contact with the school and Manish the Principal and hope I can come back to my Indian home another time. All that I can say again is THANK YOU for absolutely everything you made, that my stay will last a long time in my memories.
